Worrying doesn’t change anything.

Don’t worry about anything. Worrying doesn’t change anything. It’s stewing without doing. There are no such things as born-worriers. Worry is a learned response. You learned it from your parents. You learned it from your peers. You learned it from experience.

Here is the good news: The fact that worry is learned means it can also be unlearned.

* What do you worry about? Talk to God about your worries and honestly tell him why you worry.
* If you prayed as much as you worried, how do you think your life would change?
* God says he has your best interest at heart. Thank him in all things, even if you cannot understand what God is up to in your life.
* What do you think about most? What do you think God wants you to think about? Are these two things in alignment? If not, then why?

Think about the right things. If you want to reduce the level of stress in your life, you must change the way you think, because the way you think determines how you feel. And the way you feel determines how you act.

Also pray about everything. Instead of worrying, use your time for praying. If you prayed as much as you worried, you’d have a lot less to worry about. Is God interested in car payments? Yes. He’s interested in every detail of your life. That means you can take any problem you face to God.

His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7 NLT).
